It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Leonora (Lee) Rachel (Brownstein) Allen on August 9th, 2020, one month shy of her 93rd birthday. Predeceased by her husband Gordon (Gordy) Allen, her only sibling and closest friend whom she always looked up to, Amelia Brownstein, and her wonderful brother-in-law Norman Loeb. Lee will be sadly missed by her son Samuel (Sandy) and her daughter-in-law Pam, who was more like a daughter. She had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren Emily and Josh whom she adored and could not have been prouder of their accomplishments. Her face would light up the moment she saw them. She will be sadly missed by her nieces, nephews, cousins and her many friends both new and old. Special to her were her nephew Donny and niece Lorraine and their children whom she loved so much. Her niece Judi and nephew Mickey spoke often and dined regularly with her over wonderful conversations in her favourite winter place, Florida. Lee was the co-founder with her husband for Weight Watchers of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. She spent her life believing in the need to help others. Shiva will be private, Donations to the Amelia and Norman Loeb Gardens or a charity of your choice.

I have known Lee as my Employer at Weight Watchers for many years, but more-so as a friend. She always had an open door and loved to chat.
and find out all about you and the family.. Lee was a very special lady and I shall miss her smiling face. My thoughts and prayers to Sandy , Pam, Emily and Josh. Rest In Peace Lee. Doreen Gough.

Sandy, Pam, Emily, Josh and family, We are heartbroken by the loss of our dear Lee, she was part of our life since the mid-80's through WW's and fun times, celebrating with her, Gordy and family at special events. Lee's humour was infectious, just one of her looks could bring a chuckle to those around her, often at her own expense. We will certainly miss her but rejoice in the thought she is reunited with her Gordy. God bless her and your family as you celebrate a life well lived and a lady much loved by all of us. Love Marilyn and Jim
